4:02 am
and south carolina it will be rain. that is what we will be watching as this storm gets in our area where it cuts off from rain to snow. 23 degrees is the the current temperature, we have a northerly wind at 6 miles an hour, and 16 is our wind chill. the sunrise is at 7:17, this morning, and we have wind chills that are in the teens. it is another cold morning. here we go cold air is in place, and now precipitation is on the the way, we do expect a high of 36 degrees today, sunshine early, snow starts late, we will have that timing for you, coming up, but our live team coverage will be continuing, not only today but, of course, throughout the the weekend as well at philadelphia international a airport, lots of flights have been canceled, dave kinchen, that is where he is this this morning, standing by with the latest. they are having everybody get out of dodge early, right dave. >> reporter: yeah, no doubt about that, that is what is happening right now.
4:03 am
taking a look at the big board here you can see all of the flights, for today, pretty much are on time and posted except for a delta flight, to raleigh-durham at 3:30 p.m. but you can see folks are lined up, getting ready to get out of dodge here at the united desk grabbing their tickets and everything. we will show you video and tell you everything that we know right now. several cancellations have been coming in, in fact, american airlines has canceled all flights to and from philadelphia international airport, on saturday, other airlines like frontier and british airways have a lot of canceled flights as well, at least some of their flights have canceled. the airport will officially be opened with around the clock plowing taking place, and airlines will be tapering off flights by 10:00 p.m. friday, all major airlines will be offering wafers, travel wafers

4:06 am
next week when this stuff starts melting on monday and tuesday when we hit the 40's and none of it has anywhere to go and in the overnight hours it the refreezes. you can see how hard at work the city is already, and these two guys are already on the schedule for overtime for saturday, and it is an open ended schedule meaning don't just count on will eight hour shift but we will need you do who knows what, water main breaks, chipping ice a away and clearing more drains and more sewers. here are city officials yesterday, just giving people the latest update, and the latest warning on how to be a good citizen in the city of brotherly love. >> with this storm there is going to be some high wind, so we're really focused on potential for power outages, and down trees. we have close coordination with utility partners and parks and recreation department. >> we will have a full deployment of approximately 400 plows and 600 personnel

who have been plowing and salting our city streets. >> would i love this all for to be wrong and sun comes out at day and it is 65 but that is probably not going to happen so let's prepare for the worst, hope for the the best and be prepared for whatever comes. >> reporter: mayor kenney answered a question about why you are not yet declaring an emergency where people to have remove their cars from the snow emergency routes. he said we will hold off on that until the next day until we have a firm 100 percent sure that this storm will hit us because we all remember last year everybody prepared for a storm that never showed up. chris and lauren, expect another update, another big news conference from the mayor at noon time today and then expect the city to declare that snow emergency route and that means get your car off the main roads like the one we're on here and that deal where you can put your car in a philadelphia parking garage or lots for five bucks and let it sit there safely and you shouldn't be driving anyway.
4:08 am
park it there, keep it off the roads, keep it out of the way and stay off the roads yourself and everything should be fine by monday morning. >> steve keeley, thanks very much. we have time to wait and see, the storm is not coming in the philadelphia area until late evening, 10:00 o'clock let's just say. >> good thing about this storm it is hitting on the weekend. road crews don't to have worry about rush hour traffic and have plenty of time to clean the the street for monday morning. >> work is well underway for penndot, brine being put down on road and bridges to make clean up easier. penndot says it has 300 traffic management cameras to monitor the roads and has 450 plows ready to go across the area, crews will work, 12 hour shifts around the clock. >> penndot is ready to go. it will be a challenging one, but of course a foot of snow it will be a long storm and it is one that will be through sunday and we will be working through sunday to get the roads in as good as a condition as possible in a

4:12 am
4:13 am
4:14 am
all right. so as this storm gets closer, undoubted, you have heard we're under a blizzard watch now? what does that mean with the weather service decides to calling it a blizzard instead of the winter storm? here is criteria for this blizzard watch in effect from friday night until early sunday morning. prediction of wind or wind gusts of 35 miles an hour or more, visibility, that will be reduced, because of the wind, and blowing snow, to a quarter mile or less, and that will
4:15 am
have a prediction of duration of three hours or more. so, when the the forecast is calling for all of these criteria, that is when we have upgraded to a blizzard. it is, of course, copious amount of snow but when you add wind in and blowing and drifting snow that it suddenly becomes a blizzard. that is what we're expecting to a large portion of our area. this math has not changed a lot since yesterday. it looks like bull a's eye will be in the baltimore washington area with as much as 2 feet there. we're going for 12 to 18 inches in the i-95 corridor on either side of philadelphia, of course, including philadelphia the further south much less and especially along shore points and southern delaware where we expect rain to mix in and then north and west of the city where we will be further from the the center of that storm. it the is really gained a a lot of moisture from the gulf of mexico now. what we're expecting next is
4:16 am
for this storm, looking at here, to switch its energy to the the coastal area and then it will tart to hug the coast and then start to affect us. for right now this is an illustration we are talking about with that line between the rain and storm, rain mostly in south carolina and snow and sleet in north carolina as it moves northward. this is an interesting prediction of where we have the the greatest, instances, possible of power outages, most likely, south and east of the city and that is because that is where we expect wind to be highest. so that is because of heavier snow and wind gusting, 40 to as much as 60 miles an hour possible at the shore and that means tree limbs and power lines could easily come down in a storm like this. that is one of the biggest fear. lets talk about the timing of the storm. by 8:00 o'clock tonight snow is spreading in the area and it won't take long for it to pick up in intensity so here we are at midnight and you can see these dark areas of blue,
4:17 am
purple, and that is where the the snow will be heavier. we will see it getting, just consistently falling at a rate of one to 2 inches per hour but by tomorrow morning we will start to see some mixing with rain. by 2:00 in the afternoon there could be a dry slot where we are talking about that possibility, during the the day, but it doesn't mean it will be over, it still looks like an all day event, on saturday through the the the night until about 8h in the morning when we may see last flurries if the the storm doesn't speed up before then. that is the timing of this storm and an all day event starting tonight through saturday night into early sunday morning. wild card are how far north and west that mixing will occur with the rain, where bandings of snow will be set up and possible dry slot we have showed you where that will happen. one look real quickly at future win gusts and as we pick up at the shore, with 48 miles an hour win gusts,
4:18 am
this is 2:00 in the morning i should say and then by 8:00 in the morning we're talking hurricane force wind gustness lewis delaware but 40 miles an hour wind gustness philadelphia a so blowing, drifting snow with all that snow falling so quickly a all morning long, it will start, really with those wind picking up blowing and drifting around. one more look at our snowfall estimates, for tomorrow. it is generally a saturday storm, and a lot of snow, so we will have that seven day forecast coming up in just a few minutes, traffic time right now. no problems just yet, dave warren, as you fill in for bob kelly. he pick a good week to go on vacation. >> hopefully he makes it back okay this weekend. there is no really big problems out there they are treating the roadways. rock salt and brine solution being put down. they will continue to do that today. off ramp, and, 76, that is expected to, clear, as 5:00 o'clock this morning.
4:19 am
less than an hour ago before that. yes, all clear, roadways, schuylkill expressway, not much happening this morning and we have 95 near cottman all clear. any issues we will write them your way over next few hours, chris and lauren. authorities in camden county are after two people accused of trying to lure children with candy. >> police said a man and woman both in the 60's and 07's were in an suv that drove up to three kids along manor avenue saturday afternoon. they refused their offer and they drove off. the man and woman both had light hair and both haddon, glasses of some sort. if you have any information about this, call the the police. philadelphia licenses and inspections workers will be back at it at 22nd and locust streets working to secure the building destroyed by fire earlier this week. crews are trying to sure up the walls ahead of the snowstorm, in hopes of the building will be able to handle the weight of expect snowfall. the tuesday's fire displaced dozens of people, still no

4:30 am
white out conditions, at times, again, this will be occurring, all day tomorrow. so, this is in effect friday night through sunday morning. for the the the entire area blizzard warning now, and here is the the storm, it looks so much more ominous then it it did 24 hours ago. you can see it only takes a day for things to change dramatically. leading edge is now moving into southwestern, virginia and it is snowing in north, north caroline and sleet around fayetville north carolina and tons of rain, lots of rain around florence, south carolina we will take a look at the timing for us, next time but 23 degrees right now, and, we have a 16 degrees wind chill. sunrise at 7:17. we will start off with some sunshine but the balance of the daylight hours will be just fine, you know, driving around thinking my god, are we getting a blizzard? yeah, we are. the cold air is here. it is in the teens those wind chills this morning but snow

4:35 am
to the people of south philadelphia, clear your steps, clear that space on your sidewalk or you will get tickets but there is the the the dilemma, people don't have yard in south philadelphia, they have the stoop, and they have their sidewalk. where are they supposed to put the snow if you don't want them to throw it the in the street. >> obviously when it comes to the major thoroughfares and major road they need to be done first. our airport need to be done first. we will get the to the small streets as we have in the past. we have smaller vehicles with smaller plows that are capable of doing that. >> we are asking citizens in joining our efforts in assisting with shoveling, shoveling their sidewalks, creating a clearance of 3 feet the on the sidewalk including the curb cuts, and certainly to discourage them from putting snow back into the the streets, once they have been cleared. >> we will ask philadelphians to be safe and look out for each other. try to help your neighbors, clear the steps, check on our seniors and people who are shut in.
4:36 am
just work together as neighbors and citizens together to make sure we are safe and we get out of this as soon as possible and get back to normal as soon as possible. >> reporter: philadelphia airport has eight snow melters, these are huge things that can melt 250 tons of snow an hour but people of south philadelphia they don't own personal snow melters, i guess they are supposed to take the snow in their house and put it in their back bedroom or store it the there or put it down their commodes who knows where they are supposed to put the snow but they have to clear snow from their sidewalk, that is their responsibility. they don't have any other place to put the snow and that is why so many of them usually shovel it in the street. then you have the whole saving parking spot dilemma a and fat chance people aren't going to do that. this is philadelphia every year they say same things and every year nothing changes. chris and lauren, we will go right behind our truck here, and we will show you. this way over to my left. the there is a little house next to that nice new building that is kind of dark.
4:37 am
we always talk about dilworth park and plaza, that is where mayor richard dilworth built that house. i know all this because i lived on this block when i first moved here. that was his house. he was first person to live in society hill to help it come back to what it is today. then we have mike jerrick living across the park in that is in big apartment building to the left but a little will history there, this is where the mayor, 66 years ago lived, and i'm's sure he said the same thing, don't shovel the snow into the street, and also, keep and help your neighbors out there. >> steve keeley, it will be a very different scene out there tomorrow morning when we see you. 4:37 this morning. you know you need a little s pice in your life, and you'll love this story. here's a hint, it involves this. >> this is your favorite walk up song. >> it the is. >> steve perry, and he turns

4:44 am
4:45 am
kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase. whatever. all right. in case you missed it, and just happened a little while ago we have an upgrade from the the national weather service from our blizzard watch to a blizzard warning. the warning area is in orange here and pink area beyond it, a winter storm warning. so what makes the difference between a blizzard, and a winter storm? these are criteria, again, this is tonight into tomorrow
4:46 am
morning, we expect, and most of this will be happening tomorrow, wind or wind gusts of 35 miles an hour or more, and visibility reduced to a quarter mile or less, because of blowing and drifting snow, and all of this is expected to last at least, three hours, probably more, since this is expect to be an all day event. there will be plenty of time to pile up at least a foot of snow in the blizzard warning area, beyond that, there will be lesser amounts, especially down at jersey shore and southern part of the delaware, where we do expect rain to mix in, of course, a whole other set of problems with the high wind down there and coastal flooding because coincidently it is a full moon this weekend, tomorrow in particular. so here's where the the storm is right now. we are looking at the leading edge in north carolina moving into southern virginia but this illustrates what we will be dealing with tomorrow here, rain, sleet in between, and snow to the north and where
